DORA PA Rulemaking Complete!

  • The Colorado Medical Board finalized rules on Aug. 17 to implement changes set forth in  SB23-083: Physician Assistant (PA) Collaboration Requirements. This new law removes the requirement that a physician assistant be supervised by a physician or podiatrist except in certain circumstances.

    These revisions can now be found in Medical Board Rule 1.15. The Board also has developed a Frequently Asked Questions document that may clarify any uncertainty created by these changes.

    Please review these documents to familiarize yourself with the nature of collaborative agreements, and when supervising agreements are instead appropriate.
